The sink is upstairs?

Why is this in the basement?

My question is ,why is it there at all?
I seem to recall reading in the BIG BOOK that drum traps are no longer acceptable.
Anyone else know this to be fact?

Hmmm…I haven’t seen what appears to be a plastic drum trap before.

Looks like they still make them but I don’t where where they would be “legal”

Your right guys, this was an upgraded 1959 house, but upgraded when drum traps were still legal.
Also, it is more then two feet from bottom of sink to the trap.

Could it be that it was site built with what was left over in the recycle bin?
Just a thought.

I am seeing quite a few kitchen sink installs with the trap below the floor. Maybe they are trying to save space under the sink.
